Re: New V6 Trucks.

By offering a diesel engine in its 2014 Ram 1500 pickup, Chrysler becomes the first OEM to bring <span style="font-weight: bold">30-mpg</span> (7.8 L/100 km) potential to the light-duty side of the U.S. full-size truck segment. The much-anticipated product action also will help move Chrysler’s fleet fuel efficiency closer to the 35.4-mpg (6.6 L/100 km) combined truck/car average required by U.S. CAFE standards for 2017.

Re: New V6 Trucks.

I seen it on Yahoo news and it posted them all at 24 mpg give or take a mpg.It said nothing close to 30mpg.Maybe my read wasn,t correct but it was a V6 Diesel.

Re: New V6 Trucks.

The article I posted ( I see the link didn't work ?) But it was from earlier this year. Also, I looked at a few other articles, including one from Dodge, and none gave the est fuel mileage, they all gave guesses, so I am not saying it gets 30mpg.
Guess we will have to wait and see when they come out, or until we find something from Dodge with there estimated mpg for it.
I do believe it shows that the diesel is a tool that they are looking at to increase there fleet average, which says something.

Re: New V6 Trucks.

I've been arguing for a 1/2 ton diesel for years. Even a small truck with a little diesel in it could be great for most things. If we'd get over our HP and MPH thing here in America we could have trucks getting over 30mpg pretty easily. I'm guilty of it too, driving a 300+ HP machine back and forth to work.

Wherever somebody’s strugglin’ to be free,
Look in their eyes ma you’ll see me.

Re: New V6 Trucks.

They are going to put that little diesel in the up coming wranglers as well. I wouldn't mind a wrangler pushing over 250hp and close to 400 lbs/ft.

Re: New V6 Trucks.

They put a Mercedes diesel in the first gen Liberty for a year.It ran great but the fuel economy was poor for and it cost a small fortune.I wouldn,t mind checkin out the Chevy Cruz with the diesel.The Ford Ranger is still being built with a diesel option overseas.That should be pretty economical to run.I had a Chevy Chevette in the early eighties and they made a diesel and think I only came across one of them ever in a diesel.That would be neat to find today.I think that one was called a Scooter.I even think the early Chevy S-10,s had a diesel option.

Re: New V6 Trucks.

If I could go back in time I would buy one of those VW Pickups in a diesel.They would run forever and get a zillion miles to the gallon.

Re: New V6 Trucks.

"Diesel engines will be outdated sooner than later and the conversions I have spoken of earlier are goin on as we speak.Waste Management has been converting it,s fleets over and will be all converted before long.I,ve farmed with gas and with diesels on big acreage and myself perfer gas.The pure diesel engine in any form will be history and will be phased out in the not to distant future."

The above is a quote from Goodolboy, just guessing that aint looking like it's gonna happen any time soon.....
